insane in the membrane... awesome pics!
The single water drop with the reflections is quite good!
Wait and see...
Mighty nice Lim. The macro appears to work nicely on the A-77. Did you use manual or auto focus?
Question: What do you do all week?
Answer: Mon to Fri. Nothing, Sat & Sun I rest!
I see from the reflections you are using one of those LED panels for lighting. Which one is it and is it better than using a flash?
Look at the picture, not the pixels
LED panels is easier to work with as it offers what you see is what you get. Whereas for flash you only see the actual result after you release the shuttle. A live insects normally do not give you many chances. Of course flash do have the advantage of freezing the action. Also LED panel tends to give a more natural light feeling. You need to get LED panel of more then 160 elements in order to get enough lighting. I use 2 units of CN-160 which you easily obtain from Ebay. Thank you for looking.
Very nice shots. I have the same lens, it is my favourite!
When I take hand-held macros/close-ups, I shoot in hi-speed mode (A55) and move forward or backward fractionally to change the focus and depth of field. This method works a treat! Cheerio.
